No Igy, it has been me, only the last was a troll.
Sorry to sound pissy. The more I hear "experts" talk their book, the more I get irritated. I am outgunning everyone again this year, except for the guy I know who is shorting commodities like coach d claims to have done--and IMO I am assuming much less risk than he is.
You are one of the very few lights with whom I agree on most of the details; heck, even agip seems to be coming around a bit. I still don't think you see the full picture, however, in terms of alternative investments and business practices--but other than that, I'm with you, as far as market-related indications are concerned.
Noticeably absent has been that windbag Flagpole, who is falling further behind by the day. He would of course say that the vast majority of years are "up" years, and that he is all-too-willing to absorb the flat markets of 2015. That's why I don't have to work and he still does, at the same age. No original thinking, no creativity, just the same old, obsolete mantra.
I'm pissy about these things these days because I have had to point out to certain parties (not here) where I made correct specific predictions in 2015, because inevitably they all recited the newest mantra "Well, NOBODY could have seen THAT coming." What a load of horse-bleep.
I have become very interested in regional economies, currencies, and disparities, and geographically strategic regions, and less so in our domestic equity and bond markets.
